Town of Peshtigo Fire Dept. Hosts Golf Outing Sept. 12

Town of Peshtigo Fire Chief Mike Folgert reminded everyone at the monthly town board meeting Tuesday, Aug. 19 that the department’s annual Golf Outing fund raiser will be Friday, Sept. 12 at Little River Country Club. He said they hope to raise enough money to buy a defibrillator and some new face masks.

Supervisor Denise Wiedemeier, who was teased about having a tradition of winning the event, said others will have a chance this year because she can’t be there. She said the department always does a great job with the golf outing, with a lot of big prizes and a lot of fun.

The department had six calls since the last meeting, Folgert said. Two were for natural gas leaks in the Highway BB/Shore Drive construction area, one was for a farmer who had downed a power pole with his tractor, and three were for vehicle accidents, in which two required the jaws of Life.

Town Chair Herman Pottratz said the reconstruction of County BB/Shore Drive is finally done, and looks fine. He said the few nasty notes in the newspaper about the project aren’t really true.

Vilas Schroeder, who serves as town treasurer and County Board Chair, said the county put up the 45 mph speed limit signs on the highway yesterday. A town resident in the audience said the road is still a speedway.

Schroeder had prepared a report on income and expenses versus the budget, and advised the board they will probably need to add money to the public works budget before the year is up. Because of heavy snow plowing expenses last winter there is only $63,000 left in the account to cover snow plowing, recycling and other public works expenses until the end of the year.

Town Chair Pottratz was not concerned. He commented a budget is, only a plan, something to shoot for...that’s what we have reserves for.

At the meeting the board approved payment of bills totaling $216,159.32.

A town resident asked if the board was aware the City of Marinette is dumping sludge from the Menekaunee Harbor dredging work on city owned property in the town, at the end of the cul de sac where Corporate Piping was located.

Pottratz said he had just learned of it that evening, and will look into it.

He said the $5.5 million harbor restoration is an EPA project, and said he is certain the DNR is also very much aware of it. Supervisor Dan Staudenmaier was concerned about possible effect on neighboring wells, and that too will be looked into.

Pottratz noted that Building Inspector Leo Krivickas has raised some of his permit fees. They’re up, but not that bad, he added, but sympathized, nobody likes to pay for a permit.

Clerk Clarence Coble explained the fees that were increased went up by $25 each, but only because the $25 zoning fee is now tied to the permit. There is no longer a separate Zoning Permit fee, so there’s no real increase, Coble said.

The board agreed to repair the boat dock and put it back into the water near the boat landing at the end of Harbor Road.

Supervisor Mark Monnette said he was not aware it was town property. Supervisor Dan Van Beek asked if the water is high enough now to put the dock in, and Pottratz said it is. If the repairs are done quickly enough, it will be put in before winter. The board unanimously agreed to go ahead with providing a crushed limestone base for the electronic and tire storage areas at the Recycling Center. Wiedemeier, who handles recycling, said Van Beek has volunteered to plan and supervise the project.

The board also unanimously agreed to get cost estimates for installing electricity at the Recycling Center, which Pottratz said is something that probably should have been done years ago. Monnette said it will probably cost about $10,000. Pottratz commented the workers need light at the end of dark afternoons, and they will be able to heat the shack there with electricity instead of propane if they choose, which will be an advantage.

Without dissent the board authorized Coble to attend the WTA convention in October. Any time he wants to upgrade his training as a clerk, we have no objections, Pottratz commented.

Musical events at Loopys II were approved for August 16, 30 and 31. During discussion of that approval, Pottratz said Loopy II has the only license in the town that includes a requirement that he gets separate permission from the town board whenever he wants to have an outdoor music event. The town ordinance allows the events everywhere else without separate board action, provided they are over by 10 p.m. on weekday evenings and by midnight on weekends.

Van Beek noted the Loopy request is for events that fall within the hours allowed in the ordinance.

Coble said the Loopy II license restriction was put in place years ago when it was Good Times Pub, and had all kinds of complaints.

Comments from board members echoed Staudenmaier’s feeling that Loopy II shouldn’t be singled out, and his motion to remove that restriction was unanimously approved.

Monnette reported the town crew is still cutting grass, and the project includes trimming brush on the far side of some ditches. Ed’s Concrete is to cut holes and put some downed signs back up.

Staudenmaier said the town should buy first aid kits to be kept in each town vehicle, in the town workshop and in the recycling center. Each kit costs about $9, and he was advised to go ahead with it.

The gate at the Recycling Center has been straightened, repaired and repainted.

Coble reported the new stickers to identify town residents to use the recycling center have been ordered. He said he searched all over the Internet and then found the stickers they need at Lithocrafters in Marinette. Pottratz said it is good to buy from them anyway, as they will soon be moving their business from Marinette into new quarters in the Town of Peshtigo.
